To pick the shuttle up from bkk going to arrival door 4 and ask anyone of the 20 or so hotel people with signs and they will call the hotel for you, 20 min or so later shuttle is there for one. I cleared customs bit after 8am messed around for a bit then got the shuttle and was at the hotel 9am or so. I was shocked they let me check in right away, high marks. Then when I left the next day got late check out until 1pm, awesome. You really feel like home here.
The hotel was decent, what they offer they offer it well. The bed was comfy and clean, and the front desk was prompt and helpful. Having already been to Bangkok multiple times and avoiding the protests downtown i wanted just a room to chill and work online for a day before my next flight. This place was perfect for that, they had a cute cafe next door that i ate all meals that was decent. I struggled to find a good hotel around the airport and got a smoking deal on a third party website, and this place didnt disappoint for the price. I would stay here many times over as a solo transit traveler. It's down an alley and isn't luxury, more like a room to stay in residential Asia. The toilet is a few feet from the unseparated shower and gets wet stuff like that, not a big deal unless you are picky and inflexible.
The negatives are the location if that matters in a airport hotel. Mosquitos in the room, you might see one or two of them. The wifi was really weak in my room, last room on the end. Open the door and you get it but the walls are pretty think with something solid that blocks the signal. Basically I didn't have wifi in room, but just sat in the cafe and worked online. I met another traveler that paid almost double what I did, shop around for price. Would recommend for anyone looking for a decent place to crash that doesn't need the royal treatment.
